We are pleased to welcome Chris to our Gordon Head Recreation Centre Clinic! Chris was previously practicing at the DND Base Hospital in Victoria, British Columbia.

Chris completed a BSc. in Kinesiology at The University of Victoria in 2006.  He worked as a Kinesiologist with Summit Injury Management before going on to complete a MSc. in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta.  He returned to Vancouver Island after graduating and practiced at private clinics in Victoria and Duncan.  Most recently, Chris has worked with a military population at CFB Esquimalt’s Base Hospital.  He has experience working with sport, workplace and motor vehicle injuries, as well geriatric and pediatric populations.

Chris grew up in Bella Coola, BC and played any sport he could get his hands on.  A lifetime of injuries led to an interest in rehabilitation and Physiotherapy was a natural progression from there.  He maintains an active interest in basketball, surfing and fast pitch.

Chris has a special interest in knee, foot and lower back injuries but he enjoys tackling any rehabilitation challenge.  He has added to his toolbox with an acupuncture certification from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada (CAFCI) and is currently working on post-graduate orthopedic courses in manual therapy and the McKenzie technique for Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) of neck and back pain.  Chris’ treatment approach emphasizes active recovery techniques aimed at decreasing reliance on the therapist and promoting self-management strategies for injury management.  Chris is ready to help you reach your rehabilitation goals as quickly as possible.

Chris is a strong believer in the benefits of aquatherapy to help in your recovery. He treats clients in the pool in the Gordon Head Recreation Centre.
